Hey Caterpillar dealers! We’ll be exhibiting and presenting at the upcoming 2018 Cat Dealers Continuous Improvement Conference in sunny (and fabulous!) San Diego, CA Monday, August 15-Friday, August 17 and look forward to seeing you there. It’s at the very swanky Rancho Bernardo Inn, by the way!
As if that weren’t enough, our very own Valerie (“call me Val”) Cantrell will be presenting two times on Thursday, August 16.
First, she’ll present at 9:05 am along with CAT’s North Carolina dealership Gregory Poole in a presentation titled “Associates Development Strategy Convergence Training LMS Share.” In this presentation, Naomi will explain why Gregory Poole partnered with Convergence Training and share their experiences, with Val there to offer additional insights she has learned from Caterpillar dealers about their needs. Val will also be holding a raffle during this session, with the lucky winner taking home a Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB portable external hard drive (pretty cool!).
In addition, just a little later on the same day, Val will lead a short 10-minute Convergence Training Vendor Summary during which she’ll give a brief overview of the products Convergence Training has to offer. She’ll be happy to answer any questions you have then or at anytime during the conference.
It promises to be a great conference in total, and we look forward to meeting you there and playing our part. See you soon!

As you may know, Jeff Dalto of Convergence Training is part of the sub-committee creating the upcoming ASSP/ANSI Z490.2 standard for online EHS training.
As a result, this gives us the ability to periodically update you on developments with the creation of that standard. For example, in recent updates we discussed the meaning of the phrase “online safety training” and the use of the Delphi Method to create the new standard.
In this update, we’re going to tell you a few things we discussed and worked on in our most recent meetings, as well as point out something important about the structure of many standards like this that also has importance for OSHA compliance (hint: it involves words like “shall” and “should”).
In this article, we’re going to look at Westway Feed Products, and their HSE Regional Specialist Amy Myers.
Westway uses our Enterprise learning management system to assign, deliver, and track training and uses a number of different titles from our online training library, including training on topics such as safety, HR, and more.
We’d like to thank Amy for her time in conducting this interview and for the role she played in adopting Convergence for Westway’s training needs. And we’d like to congratulate her on the great work she’s doing, as well as congratulate everyone at Westway for working together to make a safer, more efficient organization.
Read on to learn how Amy, Westway, and the Westway employees have benefited from using Convergence Training products.
